3 Canadian Folk Songs
By Leslie Uyeda
Arranged for Soprano, Flute, Cello and Piano
These arrangements of three Canadian folk song follow Ravel's Chansons Madecasses for its arrangement. Two of the songs are traditional French Canadian (A la Claire Fontaine and Ah! Si mon Moine Voulait Danser), and have been translated into contemporary English. The Grand Hotel tells of a familiar and raucous tale in British Columbia's colorful history, with the melody being the same as the US folk song Sweet Betsy from Pike.
